I didn‘t read nearly as many books as I usually do last year. I bailed on 2 and am still working on 2…I usually get to like 20 books a year which I still know isn‘t * a lot * but this list only has 13 🙃😭 I blame the pandemic and tik tok 😬

I read this book before I went to college. Before I knew of the actual injustices that were beyond my small, white, middle class suburb. Reading this over twenty years later in 2021, knowing what I know now breaks my heart even more than it possibly could have at 18. We need to end the racist system of the death penalty.

I found a copy of this for $1 at a thrift store so I‘m re-reading it for the first time in like 20 years. I‘m not doing a great job of finding casual “poolside reading” this summer, but it‘s 2021 and we‘ve survived a pandemic so here we are 🤷‍♀️

I definitely enjoyed this book- so nostalgic! I‘ve been an avid reader my whole life so the author‘s descriptions of many of the YA books I read in the 80s and 90s brought a smile to my face

The Fiery Cross | Diana Gabaldon
Bailedbailed

I‘ve been terrible at reading this year. I love the show but had to keep renewing this book as I‘ve had to do a lot this year. I never used to bail on books. I blame the pandemic or maybe the fact that I‘ve survived one as to why I allow myself to bail more 😂🤷‍♀️ Maybe I will finish this one day. It was just much slower than the others I‘ve read for some reason.

I‘m embarrassed at how little I‘ve read during this pandemic. The things that I have read, though, are Brene Brown and this book which I think is telling. I just recently turned 40 and this book was given to me as a gift. While I couldn‘t relate to a lot of it as a straight, single woman without children, I could appreciate much of what she says about our culture and expectations as women. And I‘m glad I‘ve embraced my “Knowing” early on.

I finally finished a book in 2021 😭 this year has still been so tough. This book was easy to read and a lot like her other work, but speaks more to our political climate. I wish I could give a copy of this to everyone. Grateful for her work

I have not been able to finish a book so far this year. I blame teaching in a pandemic. This one is short so I can hopefully check it off the list.

There were parts where this book really soared, but parts where it lost me in its characters that I was to be invested in but wouldn‘t be carried throughout. I did ache for the main character and the way she was painted in the end.

Taking some time to read and relax before I head back to school next week. Send good vibes to teachers, especially those putting ourselves at risk. I‘m not stoked about it. There is no ideal situation. 😕 #2020

I really enjoyed this trilogy. I read them about as quickly as I did The Hunger Games. I like how Johnson ties the many story lines all together at the end.

I read many of these in college, but it‘s been nearly 20 yrs🙈 A friend of mine started a podcast dedicated to her short stories and asked me to be on a couple of episodes. I decided to re-read all of these. In this time of Black Lives Matter movement, especially where I live in Richmond, it‘s so sad how many of these themes haven‘t changed. Her writing is shocking for many reasons and she is a product of her time. But she can write a short story
